My Students

My students are energetic and eager to learn. We are an urban high school with about 1200 students. Our students come from a variety of different cultural backgrounds with most of our students receiving free lunch. As a remedial reading teacher, I work with small groups of students, and I really get to know their reading capabilities and interests.

This coming school year I would like to incorporate a Scholastic magazine into my curriculum that my students can read independently and build their confidence as readers.

This past year, I tried using another magazine in my classes. While it was a great resource, I found that my students struggled when reading independently.

I would like to be able to provide them with a range of reading levels in the classroom.

My Project

These magazines will not only enable my students to become confident readers but will also inform them about what is going on in the world. As a nonfiction resource, they will also build the students' knowledge of science and social studies.

I have used Scholastic magazines in the past, and they are a great asset to our curriculum.

The students learn about other cultures, countries, and people that they would not have access to if not for these magazines.

The articles have online videos, activities, skill sheets, and quizzes that support their learning and engagement. And they include a wonderful teacher's guide.
